Norway moves diplomatic delegation from Venezuela to Colombia
Norway's decision is attributed to the rapid growth reported in Colombia's economy, as well as the "active" political reforms the Colombian Government has been implementing
"In the light of the economic and political evolution in the region, and the level of insecurity in Venezuela, the embassy to Caracas will be closed in order to reopen the embassy to Bogota," the ministry informed on the plans of the diplomatic delegation.
The sources also attributed the decision to the rapid growth reported in Colombia's economy, as well as the "active" political reforms the Colombian Government has been implementing.
Moreover, Norwegian authorities extolled their country's involvement in Colombia's peace and reconciliation process to end the South American nation's conflict. They also highlighted the presence of Norwegian humanitarian organizations in Colombia.

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
